Private and corporate support is vital to HCC’s continued growth and success. Invest in the future! Explore ways you can support HCC through one of the options listed below. There are two main ways to provide financial support for the important work being done at HCC: annual giving or planned giving.
If you make a cash donation today to HCC, that's considered Annual Giving. These one-time cash gifts will be immediately invested in short-term needs such as:
Gifts of Cash Monetary gifts usually take the form of:
PledgesA pledge enables a donor to consider a more significant gift than would have otherwise been possible. If you wish, you may make a contribution with payments spread over a period of time. Reminders will be sent about your commitment. To obtain a pledge payment agreement form, e-mail Susanne Wilson or call her at (270) 831-9805.
In-kind gifts Donations of goods and services are also known as in-kind donations.
Matching Gifts Matching gift programs can double or even triple your gift to the college.
Memorial and Tribute Gifts Making a gift to the college in honor of a family member, mentor, colleague or friend as a thoughtful way to remember someone special and create a living legacy.
Employee Giving/Payroll Deduction HCC employees may make one-time or on-going contributions to the college through payroll deduction. Contributions are tax deductible in the year you make the gift to the college.
HCC allows individuals the opportunity to ensure the College's financial well-being by making gifts that provide a maximum benefit for the College, while decreasing the income tax, estate and gift tax burdens upon their estates and descendants. Philanthropic giving can support your personal financial needs and tax planning. With the assistance of your tax and legal advisors, HCC can assist you in making a difference in the future while you gain the greatest benefits today. The Advancement Office also works with individuals and organizations toward developing planned giving strategies for supporting the college or The College Foundation, Inc. over time. Our current endowments reflect the generosity of our supportive donors. Planned giving options include: • Current Will • Living Trust • Life Insurance • Real Estate • Retained Life Estate • Closely Held Stock • Charitable Remainder Annuity Trust • Charitable Remainder Unitrust • Charitable Lead Trust
